More Art in 2018

My goal for 2018 is to make more art. Most of my artwork is participatory – it’s either a project that can be made by other people or it’s a lesson for learning a creative process. Either way, I want to create and share more.

The image above is a detail of a lamp I designed. I’d like to make an instructable for it. In the meantime, here’s a brief description of the process:

  1. I sketch a spline in Fusion360 and revolve it on the vertical axis
  2. I go into sculpt mode and subdivide the form into multiple segments
  3. I pull the geometry from each segment by hand–I hover over the line segments with a mouse and write down the measurements for each unique segment
  4. From there I create a 2D cut pattern in illustrator using those measurements

Hopefully, this description makes sense to some of you. If you have questions, let me know.
